Carlye is a third-year veterinary medical student at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine working towards saving the world one fur baby at a time. For the past eight months, she has been the President and Clinic Director of the Global Veterinary Alliance, which runs biannual clinics in Nicaragua providing care to its communities and their animals. Carlye is a UCLA alumni where she majored in Biology and minored in Evolutionary Medicine. At UCLA, she was engaged in Greek life as a member of Alpha Phi Fraternity, and spent her free time volunteering at the California Wildlife Center working with California Sea Lion and Elephant Seal pups in need of rehabilitation. Upon receiving her doctorate, Carlye intends to work as a small animal veterinarian, and looks forward to spending her daily life hanging out with puppies and kittens. Since her physical presentation is an important part of professionalism in her career, Carlye prioritizes her skin care and style, using social media to keep up with recommendations and trends.
Carlye enjoys soaking up the sun and being near the water as much as her lifestyle allows and embraces the "Work Hard, Play Harder" mentality. She gets her zen on as much as possible with yoga after busy class days and taking her dog, Boone, to the park. A quick 2 hour drive up to Lake Tahoe is made frequently for day trips to the slopes, as well as adventures to the ocean to have some quality time with her favorite element. Carlye loves to travel, and just got back from a backpacking trip through Europe, and looks forward to going to New Zealand this coming March!
